by Colter Brown

The Montana Farm Bureau Federation announces their ACE (Advocate. Communicate. Educate) Leadership Program class for 2023. This is the ACE Leadership Program’s sixth year of empowering Farm Bureau members to become confident and effective leaders in their local communities and for Montana agriculture. The program arms its participants to communicate industry issues and represent Farm Bureau interests at the local, state and national level. ACE successfully does this by focusing on leadership development, engaging local communities and issues advocacy.

The year-long program will kick off January 19 in Bozeman followed by five more seminars across Montana. During these trainings, ACE participants will hear from polished agriculture advocates, media professionals, communications specialists, policymakers and more. In between seminars, they’ll also participate in virtual one-on-one coaching with an expert in leadership and personal development.

MFBF President Cyndi Johnson said, “Montana Farm Bureau Federation welcomes the 2023 ACE Class as they embark on their new adventure into our premier leadership development and advocacy training. MFBF’s ACE program will enable the participants to gain proficiency and confidence in dealing with all types of media and explore projects that could both benefit their local communities and highlight their own experience in and with Montana Farm Bureau.”
